Also, simply the Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout since they weren't allowed to put Wake N' Bake on the label.

I want to get a critique on the recipe.

Here is the info from their site:
Quote:
ABV: 8.6%
IBU: 50
OG: 20.8 Plato (my calculations are not great, so I'm guessing this is around 1.080 ish)
Malt:
2 row
flaked oats
flaked barley
chocolate
black malt
roasted barley
Hops:
chinook
northern brewer
Here is a recipe I pulled from Morebeer's forum:

6 Gallons
OG 1.084 (at 65% due to the high OG)
IBU's 50
SRM 50

17.75 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US
1.25 lb Oats, Flaked
1.00 lb Black Barley
1.00 lb Chocolate Malt
0.75 lb Barley, Flaked
0.25 lb Black (Patent) Malt
1.50 oz Chinook [10.70 %] (60 min) Hops 39.0 IBU
2.00 oz Northern Brewer [6.50 %] (10 min) Hops 11.5 IBU


Spike from Terrapin suggests Wyeast 1272, so I'll stick with that. According to the Sunday Session podcast with Spike, he uses 1lb of ground coffee per BBL in a secondary. I plan to buy the Wake N' Bake blend, which Spike formulated in conjunction with Jittery Joes (a local roaster in Athens).

I mainly want to nail down the recipe. I've only made one stout, so I'm pretty bad at knowing the correct amounts of dark grains.

I have a 5 gal mash tun, so I'll proabably mash 12ish lbs and make up the rest with DME.

Apparently (and this is very different from many coffee stouts are being formulated now) he took the ground beans and put them at the bottom of the secondary and poured the beer over it. Great beer though, let us know how this turns out!

I actually brewed up a version of this a few weeks ago, hoping to keg it today, I swear it said centennial and NB hops when I checked the site. Anyway, this is what I came up with. (FWIW, I have no real experience coming up with clones so I'm probably way off)

I plan to do something similar. I'll probably hang my large tea ball full of ground coffee in the keg for 48 hours instead of transferring to a secondary, then a keg. Less work, less chance of infection or oxidation.

Anyone else have input on the main recipe in the OP? I'm ordering ingredients tonight and just want to make sure nothing is extremely flawed.

is one package of yeast enough?

i just brewed an ipa that started at 1.071 and only pitched one slap pack of wyeast 1187 and from what i now understand, i underpitched.

of course, i also learned i could have used a starter and gotten away with it.......


forgive me if you already knew this.

Oh right. Forgot to mention that I'll be brewing a Maris Otter/Amarillo SMaSH this weekend to propagate yeast for this beast.
